The United Methodist Church of the Good Shepherd in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania celebrates over 50 years of ministry in our community and the world. The family and friends of Good Shepherd take seriously our task of serving God, who lovingly cares for each of us. We believe the required response is to reach out and share the Good News with others as a serving community of Jesus Christ.

Wednesdays Prayer and Fellowship is suspended during July and August due to the heat. However, the Pastor will still communicate the scripture via Text so that we can continue to Stand in the Gap for our church, community, and each other.

Prayer & Fellowship

Come join us on Wednesdays 6:00 – 7:00 PM (in the sanctuary)

Prayer is one of the most effective tools for the Body of Christ.

The Scripture says:

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” (Ephesians 6:18 NIV).


Our Bible study will take a recess for the summer and resume in September.  Everyone is welcome to attend, so we’ll look forward to seeing you then.

Bible Study

Wednesday afternoon – 1:00pm in the Choir room

Everyone is welcome!
